Am I In The Zone?
Meet Your Local Foresters:
Education: B.S. Environmental Management, Indiana University – 2014 M.S. Project Management and Operations, SNHU – 2023
Experience: ISA Certified Arborist. Began working as a Green Infrastructure Forester for the NYC DEP selecting flood-tolerant tree species to be planted in right-of-way bioswales. In 2016, I started working for the NYC Parks Dept. as a Street Tree Forester managing planting contracts in Queens and the Bronx. After 4 years in NYC, I joined The Greening of Detroit to oversee planting initiatives to expand Detroit’s urban tree canopy. In 2022, I happily accepted the GGCP Regional Forester position working out of the Westfield office.
Interests: Camping, hiking, kayaking, gardening.
Favorite Tree: Metasequoia glyptostroboides (dawn redwood) has a great presence in the landscape, especially when planted in groves. This ancient tree can grow to heights of 100ft when planted in the right location. Interesting that it is a deciduous conifer that has cones but loses its foliage in the fall.
